Yeasty, with light fruit. Very thin in mouthfeel, but that's what would be expected of this style of English ale. Altogether, a tasty ale for the holiday season - no bells & whistles, just a good, round ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Roughly foam that will not last long. A somewhat thin aroma, which contains most of hops and a little flower. Tastes slightly acidic and also sweet malty body with little floral synthetic aftertaste where little hops is shown. The finish is not very long, and it is an ale which do not leave a big impression.

DraftDodger (630) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2015
Copenhagen 3/5 2015. 50 cl bottle from Skjold Burne - from a box of Christmas leftovers. A slightly boozy Santa is looking bewildered at me from the label. Pours clear golden brown with off/white head which dissipates after half a minute. Aroma of fermented fruit and toffee. Soft carbonation. Taste is not as sweet as expected. Some caramel and spices balanced with dry bitterness. Ok Christmas experience but a bit flat - the good old English way.

Clear copper-coloured beer with a good foamy head. Aroma is spicy caramel. Flavour is initially malt and caramel but there’s a nice citrus-y, fruity follow-up to that and even a tinge of hoppy bitterness as it settles on the tongue. It’s not really what I think of when I think of a Christmassy beer but, despite a slightly watery finish, it’s really rather drinkable.

Bottle from backlog notes. Pours a clear deep amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel, lightly nutty, noticeable Maris Otter character, hints of fruit and a splash of general hop character, not much to get excited about.

Murky, caramel colors. Sweet nose, moderate palate somewhat oily. English, to be sure. (at Ale Jail Anniversary Party 2014)

bottle. deep copper with one finger head. malty with substantial breadiness. mild hop bitterness. flat flavor, rather boring. definitely not old-ale-like.
